Artak Hambarian: My suggestion would be 16-24 mm f/2.8.

Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 is not a huge lens, the one that I propose clearly should be smaller - and that fits my needs, and I hope needs of others too. That is my point.

I will just repeat:
"Remember the size of the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 which is for dx. "My" lens shall be smaller - since it is not intended for DSLR, and the focal range is easier. Shall be perfect for me." It should be more compact than a smallest DSLR, because of the reasons that I mention, I do not think anyone can argue against them: smaller, easier zoom range; closer to the sensor.

HAR,
Size wise its OK. But I need to address only the wide angle, 16-24, or so, f/2.8 or so. Possibly it can fit the same lens size as the X Vario's lens, since the sensor is not FF. Remember the size of the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 which is for dx. "My" lens shall be smaller - since it is not intended for DSLR, and the focal range is easier. Shall be perfect for me.

Just imagine - instead of changing the lens to a wide angle, or using a second DSLR with wide angle lens, you pull out that camera: smaller, high quality, probaly a bit more expensive than the X100, which is OK.

I will be indebted if you mention at least one that has dx (in Nikon terms) equivalent sensor size (same as this Fuji), has 16-24 mm f/2.8 fixed lens, equivalent to 24-35 mm f/2.8 in FF. While compromising the zoom factor it may gain in picture quality and compactness. E.g. Sony rx10 with its 24-200mm f/2.8 equivalent lens, although I like it, does not qualify, since it is 1" sensor camera, while Fuji's sensor size is equivalent to dx. I will use it instead of changing the lens on my main DSLR - easier, safer, quicker, and the camera shall be overall compact and of high quality. Here everywhere by "equivalent" I only refer to focal range and brightness.

I express my long time wish. I did not think this is a prophet competition...

I would be interested to know if Gitzo is going to update any soon their leveling and explorer tripods.

I like and own a number of Lowepro bags, and have been considering exactly this type of a bag. However, spec wise - F-Stop promises the same or even larger volumes with less weight and around the same or less price than the Whistlers. Plus its insert is highly modular. Why? Are the Whistler made of stronger materials? What's the real benefit?

Steven R. Rochlin: Have the Case Logic medium camera holder (with lens storage on each size) and it's great. The solid/plastic bottom is very stable and useful. Very well built case of course. Just ordered the above backpack for travelling to take to events / locations. Not the cheapest backpack, yet Case Logic has always done right with quality and durability.

Yes, evidentely you need a new bag. So I do. Hope its not too tipsy.

Well. I guess all that people are not hiking for their weddings, at least.

Artak Hambarian: Well the 24 megapixels is the yesterdays story. Give us more please... especially at that price...

Yes, you are right - I mean fixed and fixed focal length aka non-zoom. I have handled it in a shop, it feels nice, but not convenient for me. As I have written in my other comment here, at least a 24-35 f/2.8 or better 20-40 f/2.8 or even f/4 would make this camera much, much more desirable and usable as a second, wide angle body helping not to change the lens so much.

... "such a camera"... with such a high price at fixed and fixed focus lens...

Crispsting: I think 24 msg is more than enough and why would you need a zoom with the digital zoom in the camera from 28 mm to 50mm? Artak why would you want a f2,8 lens when this is a f1.7? I am ordering mine today and replacing my Fujifilm X100T.

Digital zoom is just cropping. That is why the raw dng is not affected by the digital zoom, which by itself is meaningless, except for it hints another composition. Well I wish the f/1.7 zoom was smaller. Look at the size of the Sigma f/1.8 zoom, so far the only one with that aperture. Then the idea of a relatively small camera disappears!

Artak Hambarian: ...and also please at least a modest zoom like 20 - 40 mm f/2.8. In that case I would pay even $6k. This would help me not to change my lenses on the dslr so frequently. If you like this idea, give me a discount, Leica!

I would even agree to 24-35mm f/2.8 zoom. In other words that camera should cover a good bit of wide angle and be used instead of changing the lens on the dslr. At the same time be much more usable as an independent camera too.

He he. The argument that you bring people were bringing in the time being, when the top cameras delivered 12mp and Nikon was stuck at 6mp. There were always people saying "enough megapixels"! Or saying I have a MEGAPIXEL camera! Are you saying that this particular number, the 24mp is the last one? Don't you also stitch panoramas?
